I'm pretty new at this so I guess an easy way for me to take care of this is
to, delete old repository as 'root'
login as user "svn"
create the new repository

Is this right?

Well, you could. But you can also use the chown command (as others have
said) to change the ownership of the current repository.

Assuming that user and group svn exist:
chown -R /path/to/repo

The -R (which means "do the whole file hierarchy") really does need to be
upper-case. To see the manual page:
man chown

Seems to me you could benefit from doing some reading up on Unix ;).
